OPTIONS AND ACCESSORIES
- If there is more waste water produced, or there are appliances like a dish washer in use, the GeoTrap Filter Unit should be installed. It has a grease separating well in front of the GeoTrap purifier and it adds to the purifying capacity, up to 600 liters/day.
- For sites where there is more waste water to purify, eg. in all-year use in permanent homes, the filter bodies can be produced higher, eg. 80-120 cm to add capacity – contact us!
- The filters can also be ordered without pre-bored holes. That usually helps installation to existing drain pipe lines – contact us!
- Extension for Geo Trap is needed when the filters are dug into the ground lower than the height of the filters, eg. to meet the existing drain pipes.
- GeoTrap pump well, when there is a need to lead the waste water further away from eg. coastline.
- self-adjusting frost protection cable to be used in winter in to prevent the filter from freezing. Please note that freezing of the filter body and the contents in itself is not a problem. However, GeoTrap filtering mass will not work well enough in below zero temperatures. Thus, in winter use, insulation and cable are needed to keep the temperature above zero.
Can GeoTrap grey water purifier be used during winter?
If there is use for the grey water purifier also during winter, it is advised to insulate the filter body and/or equip the filter with a self-adjusting frost protection cable.
Freezing is not a problem, both the filter body and the masses can freeze without damage and usage can continue when there is warm again.
